Peanut Butter Popcorn Nuggets - NEEDED in Colorado!

I was visiting a friend in Minnesota in January and we noticed this wonderful product at Costco! It's going to be a hit! I live in Colorado and my friend mailed me 4 bags of your Peanut Butter Popcorn Nuggets so I'm going to be snacking on them for a while...I hope by the time they're gone, they're being sold in Colorado! Bring them on!
